We keep playing and in the meantime I just looked at the situation at the end of different "chapters" of my game with Mike.
Blitzkrieg (until end of Nov '41)
I haven't captured any major cities, I failed to destroy industry, but offensive wasn't complete failure.
Ger: 750k (3k)
Sov: 3.530k (2.020k) units destroyed in November: 48 divisions (40 inf) and 9 brigades (5 inf)
I was running away along whole front. Lots of territory lost, but managed to hold on to Smolensk and Kharkov.
Ger: 750k (7k) units destroyed: 1 inf reg
Sov: 580k (10k)
Spring offensive (until mid June '42)
I managed to regain half of lost territory. Summer looked promising.
Ger: 225k (13k) units destroyed: 1 inf division
Sov: 880k (290k) units destroyed: 2 corps (1 cav, 1 tank), 34 divisions (inf) and 5 brigades (4 inf)
Failed summer offensive of '42 (until beginning of Oct '42)
Intensive fighting culminated by disastrous Stalingrad-like pocket. Total failure.
Ger: 645k (28k) units destroyed: 2 divisions (1 pz, 1 mot), 3 regiments (2 inf, 1 sec)
((Ger 785k (168k)) including pocketed units)
Units the were encircled during last turn of summer of '42 - 140k: 13 divisions (3 Pz, 2 Mot, 7 inf, 1 Mot) and 1 mot brigade, 1 inf regiment
Sov: 1525k (505k) units destroyed: 4 corps (2 inf, 1 cav, 1 tank), 49 divisions (47 inf) and 2 brigades
Situation is beyond critical.
Just to tease a bit - Fast forward few turns - Mike got his Stalingrad, I (probably) managed to pull Kharkov.
I am dead, dead but not buried yet.
